New Art and Quote of the Month
While social distancing, I have been inspired to create several new paintings. Like others, I have sought to find and feel warmth and progress as we flatten the curve.
When I painted Ablaze (above), I was thinking about the hot and complex fires we had in our wood stove at our cabin in Alaska. They were so intense, but at the same time comforting and beautiful. Can you feel warmth emanating from the painting?
On the beach and on trails I like to look at footprints and animal tracks. There is a sense of going someplace with determination. My painting Moving Forward (above) reflects this. Together, we will move forward.
Which leads me to my monthly quote, from Queen Elizabeth:
"We will succeed -- and that success will belong to every one of us. We should take comfort that while we may have more still to endure, better days will return: we will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we will meet again."
Thank you for reading my newsletter and for supporting original contemporary abstract art. I look forward to hearing from you.
